There are a number of good videos people have created of the Mt. Whitney area.

If you have one, or if you find one worth recommending, please add a link in this thread.



One of the best videos is created by Hike Along Pete. He hiked the trail in October 2003, and created a complete 6-hour DVD of the entire hike.

Below is his 5-minute summary video from YouTube.  Click this link to watch it on YouTube and see other hikers' Whitney trail videos.

Here is a table Pete and VersatileFred created in another location:
Note: This trail-video-documenting was done a few years ago at the end of October (just before the first arrival of snow), and under most favorable weather conditions without any wind and no snow or ice on the trail, except for some ice at the cables. The video makes it look easy, but high altitude and inclement weather could make it a tough and very long 22 mile (round-trip) hike.
